Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a very interesting gun! It is an original .36 caliber revolver from the famous Colt firearms Company. This is one of the desirable ones that have the iron backstrap instead of the standard brass backstrap. It has the remnants of the Colt maker mark and the Hartford, Connecticut production location across the top of the full-length 7-1/2 inch barrel. These were done just prior to the Civil War and some of this series were delivered to the Southern states including Alabama. These .36 Colt revolvers were a favorite of soldiers on both sides. Among the soldiers that used the .36 colt were Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest. It fires the standard six shots and is of the model 1851 design. It has all matching serial numbers of 72,720 except for the wedge which is an original without a number. With these serial numbers we know that it would have been made in 1857. The action of the gun still functions. The metal parts have a dark gray, almost black tone all over with some pitting as you can see. This gun has a few very interesting characteristics compared to most of the guns you encounter in this production timeframe. The gun is produced with an iron backstrap and trigger guard, as compared to the standard brass. Also the side of the frame has the "COLTS PATENT" stamping. On the handle of the gun are the original 1-piece walnut grips. The wood has a repair to the right hand side. This is an original .36 caliber Colt revolver with the interesting iron backstrap.
